Mount and Blade / Sales and trades are not supported
« on: June 03, 2017, 06:09:10 pm »
In the last few days a lot of buy requests, in the shape of threads and posts awaiting approval, have appeared. However, this board and this forum in general is not open for trades of any kind. You may contact users privately, preferably on other platforms. TKC-Community does not support sales or trades of any kind.

I never understood how it can be anonymous unless you trade bitcoin on a cash basis. All bank accounts, bitcoin deposits and so on I've seen always require your ID.

The game is intense, but doesn't handle as good as Vietcong which felt more fluid (one of few games including CS). I guess it has to do with the realistic but high running velocities, which may be needed because of the map sizes. Environment is more detailed, and there are no invisible walls. It's easier to hide, but got to take penetration ballistics into account. It's a kind of mix between Battlefield, ArmA and Vietcong. Red Orchestra is the closest approximation.

In-game you have to increase the FoV, and turn off FXAA. Maybe force MSAA if possible.

Closed beta starts tomorrow. There should be keys available for free from their partners (gaming mags I guess). Hope to test it this weekend.

Removes "A privacy reminder from Google" permanently
https://greasyfork.org/sv/scripts/18343-goog-no-reminder

There's a crappy box that appears inside the EU, in which you have to accept the conditions of Google (I never did, so it keeps repeating, but it probably has no material significance (other than that they are legally required to display it, just like with the cookie-stuff that has an "I accept" box leading nowhere)). In any case, this fix removes it permanently, and saves a lot of hassle.

Love the hats .


Got it for 14 GBP at GMG. Steam is always more expensive :(

However,  might not get access to the beta that way.

Finished the game, one of the best RTTs I've played, possibly better than Sudden Strike 2. Hopefully they'll implement multiplayer and add a continuation of the story.

Armed Assault 3 / Re: How DayZ Deals With Cheaters
« on: April 25, 2017, 03:38:03 am »
I think what made me stop playing DayZ (mod) was an anti-cheat update that decreased game performance that much that my CPU couldn't handle the game anymore. :P I never cheated.

Now I'm in the (eternal) wait for the standalone to finish.

But I do miss the "spectacle"   :icon_laugh

I agree with their criticism, the language is a mess syntactically, and has many limits (pointers, operator overloading and so on). It may be cross platform, but in most use cases in my experience, actual binaries are needed. It's possible to learn programming by doing tasks in books, and it's a start, but getting good at something requires independent projects and that means code that you can compile easily a lot of times. However, javascript is even less useful for such independent projects. It's just one step away from asking people to learn PHP (which would be a total catastrophe).

Pascal/Delphi starts out with bare limits (no mumbo jumbo syntax) and includes most, if not all, features of C++ at similar performance. That's what I would recommend instead.

Universities finally realize that Java is a bad introductory programming language
https://thenextweb.com/dd/2017/04/24/universities-finally-realize-java-bad-introductory-programming-language/

I've never come across a language that's as bad as Java, with the exception of Visual Basic maybe.

The only useful program that I ever coded in Java was a select map->coordinate translator for OFP, so that I could teleport people where I wanted (to mazes and various minigames).

However, Javascript may be even worse.
